This program will open for registration on Monday, May 10th.
Brewster Recreation will be providing a two day a week, afternoon program for kids to experience some serious time on the water! The first hour they will be able to do some stand up paddle boarding with the SUPfari staff, and then they will get a half hour lunch break. Once they are done with lunch they will be ready to start sailing. The sailing portion of the class will allow the kids to get some instruction with a good portion of their time on the water applying all the things they have learned.
This comprehensive program will teach the basics with students sailing from Day 1. The classes include basic nautical terms, docking and mooring procedures, knotting techniques and recovery methods.
All sailors will be evaluated on the first day to place them at the appropriate level of instruction. As sailors advance, an overview of racing skills and advanced boat handling will be covered. It is our hope that students will build confidence in their general knowledge of rigging, sailing without an instructor and be willing to learn increased technical skills.
*Participants are advised to bring their own life vest.
